Brandon made a huge difference in the lives of many children. As a coach, baseball was his passion and he instilled this love in so many kids he was fortunate enough to coach. His wife and children were his world and he cherished his best friends. He and his mama Elaine shared many moments together. While he was transitioning between Alabama and Virginia, he would often stay with his mom sharing memories of their lives together. He could always count on his mama for anything. Brandon was a family man with good morals and values. He often thanked Coach Clifford Story for making a huge impact in his life. Brandon was a huge Florida State fan.
